Patapum Toddler Carrier

3 Replies

Hello ! Has anyone any feedback on the Patapum Toddler Carrier or Baby Ergo carrier. My son is fast outgrowing the Baby Bijorn carrier and am thinking of getting a carrier that can carry him behind on my back. I havent seen any local shops stocking these items though besides the framed aluminium Chicco/lafuma types. I prefer a soft carrier that can be transported easily. Has anyone got a secondhand patapum or baby ergo carrier one they want to sell ? Many thanks

Hi Steph, I bought an ergo (old generation) for my first baby and am very pleased with it, it goes from new-born to big toddler if you like doing the carrying thing for a while... It is very comfortable and has wide straps and good back support. I found it a bit hot in the in this area though, as it has a thick belt area and lots of contact with baby.

I bought mine online from 'little possums' - not ready to part with it though as #3 due soon... Perhaps you could find a second hand one on ebay? If you want to try it out and don't live too far from me feel free to drop by (montauroux).

Thanks ALX but since I'm at Villeneuve Loubet, you are a bit faraway ;( but nice of you to offer to let me try your ergo out. Is it easy to put the baby in the Ergo and than on my back ? Thats my main worry since my boy is such a squirmy, can't stay still long enough monkey. With the Baby Bijorn I can just strap him in cos it all happens in front.

I just bought a playtex hip hammock. For older babies up to 35 kilos. Very simple to wear and folds up into a little pouchy thing around your waist. Have read a lot of positive reviews. baby is worn on the side of you, putting weight on your hip, not your back.
